This morning while preparing to go back to the store, I thought to myself, i would very much like to go back to work. Yes, we own our own business.. but helping the “ang moh” is different from going out and earning someone else’s money. As much as I would love to go out and interact with some “normal” people and having an objective in sales target and so forth.. i once again thought about who is gonna take care of Chloe. And having not work in a regular and demanding job for the last 10 yrs.. i’m actually wondering if I’m equipped to go back to the workforce. I also figured that I should do some upgrades now.. like look into some online degree programs that way i still can be there for Chloe when she is back from school or be home to put her to bed on time without having to go to school physically.
By opting to go for an online university , I don’t have to worry that I’m leaving Chloe on her own while she is still so young yet I can prepare myself to enter the workforce with an extra degree that my future employer will value. Doing my degree online also allows me the flexibility to plan my time accordingly and fit them around Chloe’s many activities and those of the store’s. I love the fact that tuition on these online courses are affordable because you and I know that raising a kid is not cheap and cost effectiveness is one thing I learn from being a mom. Moms like me raring to going back to the workforce can make their dreams come true now, but discipline and having strong family support as well as a reputable school is important. What is your take on upgrading oneself..?
